Minister of Youth and Sport Vincent Mwale has challenged youths in the country to strive in becoming own employers after acquiring the necessary skills.

Mr. Mwale said this is the only way youths can empower themselves and reduce the dependence syndrome of being employed.

The minister however said government will continue to create an enabling environment in which youths with various skills can actualise their dreams.

Mr. Mwale said this in Lusaka today at the 7th graduation ceremony of Mulele Mwana Youth Skills Training Center.

A total of 145 students graduated in Food Production, Automotive Mechanics, Power Electrical, Carpentry and joinery among other courses.

And Mulele Mwana Youth Skills Training Center Board Chairperson Prisca Sampa disclosed that this year’s number of graduates represents a 12 percent increase from last year.

Mrs. Sampa has since appealed to government and other stakeholders to assist the institution in expanding the existing infrastructure due to the rise in enrolment levels.

  3. Yesterday I read an article about the Zambian government urging people not to rely on Zesco but find alternative sources of energy. Now they are telling the youth to bugger off and be self employed.

    It’s starting to seem that this is a government who want no responsibilities except to collect a paycheck and go globe trotting.
